Objective: the present study was conducted to validate in-vitro anthelmintic activity of various extract hexane, ethyl acetate, ethanol, water of eclipta prostrata (l)., aganist pheritima posthuma by petri-dish method. Method: the in-vitro trial for anthelmintic activity of various extract of eclipta prostrata(l)., was conducted on mature live pheritima posthuma by petri-dish method. The extracts were used at the concentration of 5mg, 10mg, and 15mg and observation were made on their viability at room temperature. Results: among the various extract, only ethyl acetate and ethanol have anthelmintic activity. 5mg, 10mg, 15 mg/ml of ethyl acetate have produced paralytic effect at 34minutes minutes, 29 minutes and 20 minutes and mortality was confirmed at 111 minutes, 61 minutes and 46 minutes.5mg, 10mg, 15 mg/ml of ethanol have produced paralytic effect at 27 minutes, 23 minutes and 17 minutes and mortality was confirmed at 83 minutes, 72 minutes and 34 minutes respectively. Conclusion: an anthelmintic has been confirmed as the various extract shows good anthelmintic activity against pheritima posthuma.
